Tedy Bruschi still moving to bigger role at ESPN despite latest stroke
Tedy Bruschi suffered his second stroke earlier this month, but all of the updates we have heard about his health over the last two weeks have been positive. On Tuesday, ESPN provided another.
Bruschi, who has made regular appearances on “NFL Live” and other programs for the past several years, is moving to a bigger role with ESPN. The network has announced its plans for 2019 NFL pregame shows, and Bruschi is joining “Sunday NFL Countdown.” He will replace Charles Woodson.
That is obviously a great sign, as it indicates it will be business as usual for Bruschi when the 2019 season gets underway — and likely sooner. The former New England Patriots linebacker has been a huge advocate for stroke awareness since he suffered his first back in 2005, and he said he was able to get the help he needed this time by immediately identifying the signs. We’re glad to hear he is recovering well.
